American Psychologist 60(1), 16–26 (2005) 2 Computer Aided Mechanism Synthesis: A Historical Perspective Thomas R. Chase, Gary L. Kinzel, and Arthur G. Erdman Abstract. The age of computer aided mechanism synthesis began in the late 1950’s, as Freudenstein & Sandor published the first paper on the topic [14]. Many exciting developments occurred over the next 60 years, resulting in the development of multiple intriguing mechanism synthesis packages at several leading research institutions.

The early programs had to be rewritten to survive. During this transition, LINCAGES was maintained and enhanced, but RECSYN was not. While simplified aspects of RECSYN were reprogrammed in MATLAB for two and three positions [43], the original version of RECSYN was not reprogrammed to run on mouse driven, Windows-based platforms, and therefore the program ceased to be used. As the personal computer became commonplace, the price of both computers and software tended to decrease significantly. In addition, both the graphics capabilities and the speed of computers increased dramatically.

MMS 14, pp. 17–33. R. L. G. Erdman programs or they can be recast as special case motion generation problems. Therefore, the most difficult problems tend to be motion generation and path generation, and this is where much of the effort in developing robust computer-aided design (CAD) programs has been concentrated. Since computers became available in universities in the late 1950’s, much time and effort has been expended by engineers and computer scientists to develop design software that will simplify the linkage design process.
